Come and see it for yourself

Starts March 31st in the Black Isle and in three weeks reaches 12 venues across Great Britain on its route to the Black Sea.

Black Pantera 4503  Following on from its inaugural showing at Agritechnica 2019, the unique all-black Pantera 450350 is being let out on tour for the next 6 months.

Designated the ‘Black Isle to the Black Sea Tour’, this elegantly-lacquered self-propelled sprayer will be winging its way down south on its way across 11 countries and travelling around 6,000 kilometres in 23 weeks; the machine landing up on the coast for a paddle in Bulgaria in and around September 2020.

For us here in Britain, the grand tour starts on March 31st at the Black Isle Showground for a breakfast meeting, courtesy of local Amazone dealer, Mark Garrick Ltd, where visitors can come and check out the new model 4503 with its Cat. IV cab, Stage V emission system, the all-new ContourControl boom with SwingStop, Comfort-Pack II, its eloquent Amazone in-house developed software and the many thought-through tweaks to what is already a very successful product.
